You seem to have missed the point, Mr Stoller.

Im not talking about capitalisms illusion of freedom, but alternatives to it.. Equality = Marxism - Individual Freedom = Anarchism....
Systems that rival capitalism - they either hold individual freedom to be the highest goal (at the cost of equality), or they hold equality as the highest goal (at the cost of individual freedom)..

I didnt mean it as an attack on anyone, but merely wished to point out that in my point of view, when theorizing on this kind of thing, you must decide which is most important - equality or freedom.. Also, i realise the flaws of capitalism, why would i bother to defend it?

Not everyone is attacking you Barry
